|This plugin provides a simple file browser. It is not a full blown
explorer but can be nevertheless be useful for quickly selecting a few
files or renaming them.
As the plugin does some caching in the background, the filelist is only
generated once for each path or when called with [!]. In conjuncture
with the use of the [wbg]:tselectfile_filter_rx variable, this provides
for use as a simple ad-hoc project manager.
When I open a file under "~/vimfiles", I set b:tselectfiles_dir
to all the relevant directories under "~/vimfiles" and then set
b:tselectfile_filter_rx = expand('%:t:r'). Thus, when I open
"~/vimfiles/plugin/foo.vim", b:tselectfile_filter_rx is "foo", and
:TSelectFiles shows all the files under "~/vimfiles" matching "foo".
- list files (recursively or the in the current directory only),
dynamically select files matching a pattern
- open files
- preview files
- rename/move files
- batch rename/move files (using a regular expression)
- copy files
- delete files
- show file info
Related files: If you set |g:tselectfiles_filter_rx| to some appropriate
value, only files matching that regexp will be shown initially. This can
be used to restrict the list to "related" files. (The initial filter can
be removed by pressing <c-bs>.) See also |tselectfiles#BaseFilter()| and
Rolodex: If a filename matches an entry in
|g:tselectfiles_filedescription_rx| (a dictionnary patter => funcref),
funcref(filename) will be called to retrieve the file's description.
This function could be used to extract metadata or selected lines from
the file etc. By mapping one record onto one file, you would get some
sort of rolodex-like database. See
|tselectfiles#FormatVikiMetaDataOrFirstLine()| for an example for
viki/deplate (vimscript #861) formatted files.

See :help vimball for details. If you have difficulties, please make
sure, you have the current version of vimball (vimscript #1502)
This script requires tlib (vimscript #1863) to be installed.
